RMC Research & Education Foundation Group touts green studies

The RMC Research & Education Foundation celebrated Earth Day 2009 by highlighting its most recent research on the use of recycled materials in concrete. The Foundation’s crushed concrete aggregate study demonstrates that crushed returned concrete can be successfully reused as aggregate in fresh concrete. Also, a study on advancing higher-volume use of the waste byproduct fl y ash in concrete, co-funded by the Foundation and the United States Department of Energy, shows that recycled materials can be used in new concrete while still maintaining a high level of quality and performance. The CCA study, the fl y ash study, a fl y-ash “Guide for the Construction Team” and other reports are available as part of the Foundation’s free Research Supporting Sustainable Development CD and may also be downloaded individually from the Foundation’s Web site. ? www.rmc-foundation.org
